Let's see: yesterday night we saw Iron Man 3; it was okay, but I had my usual complaints--too many chases, fights, explosions. The actual narrative pieces, including Tony Stark's panic attacks, were intriguing, and I loved the kid he hooked up with. I enjoy summer blockbusters (well, at the second run house, where tickets cost $2 or $3 depending on the time of day--actually we can always get in for $2, since we're "seniors," but I love the Riverview, so I always pay $3 when I'm buying), but do we really need all the mayhem? We've now seen previews for Gatsby twice (last night and when we saw 42), and I think we'll plan to see it, for the visuals if nothing else. And Bob never read the book, and doesn't remember seeing any earlier film version; I know I saw the Robert Redford/Mia Farrow one, which I remember enjoying well enough. Also coming soon: Star Trek: Into Darkness, which I definitely want to see again (despite fights, chases, explosions) because Benedict Cumberbatch is such a delicious villain.

Tonight is opening night for Camino Real, and we had preview articles in both the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press, so I hope that will bring in the audiences. It is a challenging, but I think very powerful and moving play; we'll see how it goes. Openings are always fun in any case, so I'm looking forward to that. The rest of the weekend should be pretty low key, though I'm planning to see the encore screening of the National Theatre Live production of The Audience with Helen Mirren on Sunday.
